Hike cancelled due to the coronavirus issue. Had a lot of people signed up and carpooling would be required due to limited parking at trailhead. Plan to reschedule in April, but limit number of participants to ten; first come, first serve.


First day of spring hike; well sort of, the vernal equinox this year is actually on March 19, but close enough! An approximate ten-kilometer (6.3 miles) circuit hike with two scenic viewpoints, one to the west towards Berkeley Springs, the other to the east (High Rock Vista). Two sources indicate that this hike is either 7.0 miles (Hiking Upward) or 6.3 miles (All Hikes); actual distance probably somewhere in-between. Either way, a relatively short, moderate hike.

Meet 10:30 am at the trailhead or 9:15 am at the Brunswick Park & Ride on Route 180, a short distance off the Burkittsville/Brunswick exit of US Route 340. Please let me know if you intend to carpool or meet at the trailhead. Parking at the trailhead is limited!
